Cat Thomson tries out the curry house voted best in Scotland
At this time of year the forecast is for temperatures to plummet, and the big freeze is to make an appearance very soon. It might be chilly outside but inside our house it was utterly Baltic, resembling a location from new movie Frozen 2.

Please spare me a thought, folks, it might be all warm “Hygge” or cosy “Coorie” round your place, but I had blankets pulled up over my knees, just to stop my teeth chattering with a room temperature hovering about minus two. A direct consequence of all his economising was that our once cosy cottage now felt as if it was on the outskirts of the Arctic Circle, with our living room illuminated only by the dim twinkling of the Northern Lights. Jumpers and thermals were ranking highly on the Christmas present list.
